Giusi and Dario are perfectly delightful hosts! (and a hard-working,
multi-talented couple, as well). My friends and I felt fortunate to have stayed
in their lovely 3 bedrooms/3 bathrooms cottage located in the hills of Tuscany.
The entire property is meticulously maintained and we felt instantly comfortable
as soon as we agreed upon which bedroom to stay in...which wasn't too difficult
because all of the accomodations were equally charming! The kitchen and outdoor
patio were great common areas and each bedroom felt spacious and private. We
enjoyed hiking the property and seeing views of Lake Transimeno. And we always
had good appetites! Giusi was kind to give us a few Italian cooking lessons in
her authentic kitchen/classroom. In fact, we're still salivating over the meals
we shared together at the long table she so gracefully adorned with her garden
flowers! Yes, it's difficult to not want to move-in perminately! I stayed here
10 years ago and as recently as last March of 2014. I've always rented a car so
as to venture out on easy day trips to Siena, Assisi, Cortona, Pienza and
Deruta...and I love taking trains to Rome and Florence from the nearby station
in Camucia. But, honestly, it's the days thatvwe decide to not leave Giusi and
Dario's, that are the days I re-discover what Italy is all about! Eating,
laughing, and cultivating those lasting friendships over delicious food and good
conversation - Well, that and the olive oil! Seriously, I highly recommend
putting this particular place on your bucket list! These days, there are many
different rental options to chose from online. But, knowing this particular
family first-hand for many years now and observing the property only becoming
more beautiful by all their loving touches...Well, I can sincerely and
confidently encourage travelers to discover the true heart of Italy for
yourselves! And I'm sure you'll dream of returning again and again, as I always
seem to do, as soon as I have to leave this dreamy place.
